Review: If You Were Me and Lived In...Turkey by:Carole Roman

 If You Were Me and Lived In... Turkey: A Child's Introduction to Culture Around the World
About the Book:
Number four in a series of world culture, If You Were Me and Lived in... Turkey, explores cultural differences through a child's understanding. A respectful and lively treatment of the subtle differences of the people from different parts of the globe we share. Join Carole P.Roman as she travels to learn out the people, culture, and customs of the people Turkey.

About the Author:
Former social studies teacher Carole P. Roman's fourth entry in her cultural series, "If You Were Me a Lived in..." takes young readers to Turkey. The series has been embraced by parents, educators, as well as her target audience, children ages 3-8. Her award winning series Captain No Beard, has developed a huge fan base. She lives on Long Island with her husband and near her children and grandchildren.

My Review:
 Once again, we are reunited with Carole Roman and her awesome children's series, If You Were Me and Lived In..... In this addition we are transported to Western Asia, to the land of Turkey; and if you live there it is officially called the Republic of Turkey. Turkey is a cool country full of rich culture that provides many tourist attractions and very rich, fulfilling foods&dishes sure to please every palate.

 The author describes the food served there in such detail that you can almost taste the Borek and Doner Kebabs. Girls there play with dolls (bebek) and boys enjoy a good game of football (which is like our game of soccer). They also enjoy and celebrate a holiday there called Children's Day which is celebrated every year on April 23rd.

 As you can see, Turkey is a very exciting country to learn about, I have only touched on a few of the many facts in the book. If You Were Me And Lived In...Turkey, is a great way for your child to learn about this faraway land. If you would like to purchase this great children's book, you can do so at this link.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
